Dear friends of CDI,

Happy Giving Tuesday! As we enter the holiday season #GivingTuesday offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday deals, and instead provides an opportunity to make meaningful, charitable contributions close to home.

Throughout the year, the CDI team works tirelessly to provide a successful pathway to college graduation for first-generation, low-income Scholars who face unique economic and educational obstacles. 

The CDI Scholars Program gives these bright, motivated high school students the chance to create a life of opportunity through a unique, six-year, comprehensive support program from 11th grade through college graduation. Since 2005, 100% of CDI Scholars have been admitted to selective four-year colleges and universities. Most importantly, Scholars have posted an incredible 97% college graduation rate!

It is only through the generous support of donors like you that CDI is able to continue this important work. As our CDI team looks to expand our programs and services to assist more students, we ask that you  participate in our #GivingTuesday campaign by donating what you can and spreading the word about CDI through social media, to help us reach our $15,000 goal.

Please visit our Giving Tuesday campaign page to make your donation and to learn how your generous gift will help CDI change the lives of more students by allowing them to achieve what’s possible.
